Facilities Closure Notice

Nov. 19/20

Dear Snuneymuxw,

The health and safety of Snuneymuxw citizens is of the highest priority of Chief and Council. Due to the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Nanaimo, Chief and Council passed a resolution to suspend all group activities taking place within Snuneymuxw community until further notice. This includes Women’s Group, Youth Group, educational groups such as language classes at Woodbank, and any and all groups led by Snuneymuxw Administration.

SFN has also made the decision to close the recreation facility, longhouse, and community kitchen for at least 2 weeks. You may still submit event forms to request access to these facilities at later dates.

Chief and Council will review facility closures and activity suspension on December 3rd to determine next steps, based on the COVID-19 situation in the region at that time.

SFN continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and is taking active precautions and measures to ensure the health and safety of the community.

Thank you for being kind to one another.  We are all in this together.

If you have any questions, please contact Emmy Manson at 778-971-0715 or Samara Aitken at 613-218-9553. You can also send questions to emergencyresponse@snuneymuxw.ca
